Mind the trap

It maybe that I have been an unwitting acomplice to the GOP. In a previous post I chided Kerry for campaigning rather than voting for a bill to extend unemployment benefits. According to Newsday, the Republicans might have set up Senator Kerry:

The Democrats countered that the vote was only a setup to make Kerry look bad. After all, they'd been trying to vote on the amendment for months, but the Republicans kept blocking it, claiming that the extension would break the budget. In fact, Democrats charged, the Republicans intentionally stacked their votes to create a one-vote loss that they could then blame on Kerry. And if he had come back to Washington for the vote, they would have flipped their votes the other way to make sure the amendment failed.

I feel so cheap, so dirty...
